Types of membership

ACPS has 3 types of membership. Please follow the link for each one to see more information:

1) Full membership. Full members are experienced therapists who are actively involved in running the service.

2) Network Associate. Network Associates are experienced therapists who can receive referrals from ACPS and pay a small annual fee plus a referral fee.

3) Graduate Associate. This is a two-year scheme for recently qualified therapists who receive referrals from us for reduced-fee work in order to build up their private practice.
